Rugged Samsung Rugby Pro

In the hierarchy of durable phones, the Samsung Rugby Pro is rugged light. What it lacks in thick, rubbery armor, it makes up for with push-to-talk and the most advanced Android capabilities I've seen on a phone of this type. Read editors' take

Almost flush

The styled sides are fairly flush with the phone's screen, not recessed. On the plus side, the display is easier to read. On the downside, it's also easier to break. Read editors' take

Oops

I may have thrown the phone a little harder than I intended on a carpeted surface (not the concrete pictured), but the back panel immediately popped up. Make sure you screw that down well. Read editors' take

REVIEW

The most beautiful phone ever has one wildly annoying issue
